If you are providing a majority of his support and have no written agreement to the contrary, you can claim him. If you and she together are providing a majority of his support and you have a written agreement that you can claim him, you can claim him. If you are providing at least 10 percent of his support and nobody else claims him, then you can probably claim him.
